CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Bradford County and the city of Starke have received word that a proposed amendment to the Florida Department of Transportations five-year plan could begin work on a coveted overpass of the railroad running parallel to U.S. 301 through the city. Need for the project had been discussed for a long time but it has always been overshadowed by county road projects and the project to bypass the city with a truck route, construction of which has finally been funded to take place over the next few years. Public safety has always been cited as the primary reason for a railroad overpass. The overpass would allow emergency services to respond to residents and businesses on the east side of the tracks and allow transport of patients from the west side to the hospital, even if the tracks are blocked, for example, by a stalled train. The project has been discussed with legislators representing the area by its champions on the Starke City Commission, including Commissioner Carolyn Spooner. In March, FDOTs Jordan Green told the commission that $220,000 had been programmed into the budget to begin developing the project. The proposed budget amendment that has been sent to the governors office for approval is for $1 million, however, a sign that more could be happening. What that more is remains to be seen. Questions to FDOT were not answered as of press time. Documentation obtained on the amendment references project development and environmental study of a two-lane bridge spanning the CSX rail line. It also seems to indicate the construction will take place over an existing intersection as it would remove an at-grade crossing. Which crossing is not specified. While there is a lot of support for the project from leaders, there are also already concerns about the location of the overpass impact on existing businesses and residences. Green told the commission in March that the minimum bridge height is 25 feet, and getting traffic up and over the track at that height is going to take a good length of roadway. He said finding a location for the overpass would be a challenge. Hampton man arrested for sex crimes BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor Bradford County Sheriffs Office has put a Hampton man behind bars on two counts of sexual battery. The office received reports on Sept. 17 from the University of Florida Child Protection Team disclosing past sexual abuse involving two child victims. Timothy Wayne Chastain, 27, of Hampton is accused of exposing himself to the victims, sexually abusing them and showing them pornographic material. One victim was in the first grade at the time. The other was in second grade. Chastain had been left in charge of their care, but instead used his cell phone to show them photographs and movies of people having sex, and, according to one victim, he said he was going to teach her how to have sex. Investigators with the sheriffs office made contact with Chastain in Starke on Oct. 16 and arranged for him to be brought to the sheriffs office for questioning. According to the arrest report, Chastain admitted to babysitting the children but denied the allegations of sexual abuse. According to him, one or both of the child victims came onto him, and while he acted inappropriately each time, touching her and exposing himself, he put a stop to it because she/they were minors. Chastain was arrested and remains in custody at the Bradford County Jail on two charges of sexual battery on a victim 12 years of age or younger. Total bond was set at $200,000. Chastain has a lengthy arrest history and was previously convicted of crimes including petit theft, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and battery. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor A board member of the Keystone Heights Golf and Country Club told the Bradford County Commission that his organization is in a financial crisis. Billy Jackson said that during an Oct. 14 country club board meeting, the panel laid off two of its three maintenance workers. In an interview after his presentation to commissioners, Jackson said members also discussed closing the course, selling the facility or filing for bankruptcy. Those are, pretty much, the three choices that we have, he said. Jackson added that with the layoffs, the condition of the course will continue to deteriorate. The golf course is not going to be taken care of, he said. Jackson told commissioners that over the summer, when the club was unable to repair and maintain its mowers, he asked the county for inmate labor to help maintain the course. He said the countys legal department told him that because the country club was not a charity, it did not qualify for inmate labor. Jackson asked commissioners to reconsider the legal opinion, and allow the inmates to work at the facility. In addition, he suggested the county consider buying the 98-acre course. Jackson said that if the course closes, surrounding properties could see a loss in value of up to 30 percent, similar to the drop in values that homes around Gainesvilles Turkey Creek Golf and Country Club experienced when that course closed in 2011. We have some people that have said they are interested in buying the golf course, he said, but you know how some people will say things, but when it comes time to write a check, it never happens. He added that the clubs cash flow situation is critical. Weve got about two weeks of operating expenses left in the bank, he said. In an interview after the Bradford commission meeting, another club board member, Cliff Chapman, described the clubs financial situation as treading water. He confirmed that the club laid off two employees in October, and corroborated Jacksons description of the organizations low cash reserves. However, he added that the club is continuing to collect revenues from members and guests and that historically, summer is the courses slowest season. A course like this needs $30,000 a month coming in and we are nowhere near that, he said. Chapman added that Keystones situation is not unique, pointing out that over the last several years, an average of two golf courses a week closed in the United States. Chapman said the board hoped to pick up business over the summer when both the Gainesville Golf and Country Club and the University of Florida course closed for the season to upgrade greens. However, most golfers opted instead to play at Ocala courses, many of which not only offered discounted greens fees, but also threw in free food and beverages. Jackson said that the clubs membership has dropped from 200 in 2004 to 30 today. He also said the club has run monthly cash flow deficits for almost every month in 2013 and 2014. Embracing the heroes SRWMD, Rayonier partner on aquifer recharge project The Suwannee River Water Management District is partnering with Rayonier to recharge the Floridan Aquifer by restoring a natural hydrologic connection to Brooks Sink in Bradford County. Brooks Sink is one of the largest cover collapse sinkholes in the state of Florida. Brooks Sink naturally recharges the Upper Floridan Aquifer. Nearly 40 years ago, prior to Rayoniers ownership of the property and prior to existing regulations, a series of ditches were excavated that drained the wetlands. Now the district and Rayonier have developed a partnership to restore the natural flow of water to Brooks Sink. The project consists of installing water control structures called flashboard risers that will re-establish the natural flow back to the sinkhole. The project is estimated to increase recharge to the aquifer by an additional 220 million gallons per year. Presently, water is diverted to another watershed, with system losses to evaporation and to tide. We are delighted to move forward with a collaboration that fosters the restoration of our natural systems and hydrology to promote aquifer recharge, says Ann Shortelle, executive director of the district. We have long recognized that Floridas working forests the dominant land use in north Florida hold the key to solving many water resource challenges including water quality protection, flood control, alternative water supply and aquifer recharge, said Lynn Wilson, executive vice president of forest resources for Rayonier. We are pleased to partner with the Suwannee River Water Management District to help restore historic water flows on this property and provide needed recharge to the Floridan Aquifer while protecting surface waters in the drainage basin.

CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor A project to generate electricity from landfill gas is looking more promising than ever for the New River Solid Waste Association. Alan Beer of Florida Energy Partners, who had previously spoken to the board about a selling its power to Duke Energy, said a new opportunity had presented itself since the August meeting. I wouldnt bring it here to you today unless I thought it was a better opportunity for New River as well as an opportunity for us to (pick up) another month on the schedule, he said. According to Beer, working with Seminole Electric instead of Duke Energy to be the guaranteed purchaser of the power will get the project accomplished sooner because the power purchase agreement wont have to go to the Public Service Commission for approval, and allow the landfill to work with its own power supplier. Seminole Electric provides the power sold through Clay Electric Cooperative. Seminole already has a power purchase agreement in place that has been approved by its board that simply needs to be executed by both parties, Beer said. Florida law requires utilities to purchase renewable energy when it is available. The price is based on the avoided cost of generating that power. Landfill Executive Director Darrell ONeal also pointed out that there were no termination fees built into the Seminole agreement as there were with the Duke agreement. Another big advantage for the landfill is the lack of a wheeling charge to transport the electricity and the negligible line loss. Getting the power to Duke would require using both Clay Electric and Florida Power and Light lines. Beer figures the lack of a wheeling charge would add an additional $400,000 to the associations bottom line during the first five years of the project, which sounded very good to board members. Even better, it gives the landfill an opportunity to move on to a better price from another utility in the future. Using data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Beer said the percentage increase in prices for coal and natural gas is expected to be roughly the same from 2016-21. After that, natural gas prices are predicted to rise at a faster rate, at which time it would be more advantageous to New River to connect with a utility company with a greater reliance on natural gas to generate power. The greater the avoided cost of generation, the more the landfills renewable energy will be worth. You already know you can sell that power to whoever you want, but Seminole will give you a lot more money in the early years, in particular, and then if you want to switch to somebody else, you can, he said. Board members were happy with the news and eager to get the project going. Do you think you could find somebody else and bump it up a few more months? Union Commissioner Karen Cossey teased. Engineer Joel Woolsey endorsed signing a power purchase agreement with Seminole, saying it would be a simplified process. If youre going to gain time and get into producing power faster, which is what everyone wants, the Seminole route is the way to go, he said. And theres very little risk. We know in the future how our prices are likely to continue to go up, and then you can sell your power to a different user some time in the future. ONeal said it would also be an advantage working with a local purchaser with local board members if issues do arise. He said Seminole Electric was the staff recommendation, as well, so the board voted unanimously to pursue a power purchasing agreement with the utility company. Florida Energy Partners has the contract to develop the project. Construction of the landfill gas-fueled power plant is expected to begin early next year and be completed before the end of 2015. There will be a period of testing, and the plant should be fully generating electricity and revenue by early 2016. New River Solid Waste Association is funding the construction with funds set aside for long-term care and will pay itself back with interest over time with revenue from the project while also realizing a profit. Profits from the gas-toenergy project were previously anticipated to increase annually from around $406,000 in the first year to nearly $1.6 million for the year 2029. Five qualify to run in Lawtey BY MARK J. CRAWFORD Telegraph Editor The Lawtey City Council races that will be decided come December filled up with incumbents and challengers last week.

BMS students to attend FFA convention BY TRACY LEE TATE Telegraph Staff Writer Bradford Middle School has five students going to the FFA National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky. after only four years with a full-time agricultural science program. Ag science teacher Allison Hartley said she is excited to be taking students to the national competition this year. The kids have worked really hard to get where they are and I am happy to see them recognized for their achievements. Emily Acevedo, an eighthgrader and chapter vice president, will be competing with an agriscience fair project in which she has been trying to develop a pregnancy test for goats. Acevedos mother is an ag science teacher at Bradford High School and her grandmother is the former director of the Suwannee Career and Technical Center. With the support of her family, Acevedo has been able to consult with experts at the University of Florida and has also done some research in Kentucky. At the current point in her research she is able to determine if a goat is pregnant through a blood test, as well as how far along it is in the pregnancy. This is a great asset in herd management. Acevedo won the FFA state division for her project in June. If she wins at the nationals she will have to retire her project from competition. If she does not win she will be able to continue work on the project for another year and perhaps perfect the test she is searching for. Madison Bennett, another eighth-grader, is very active in the FFA chapter at BMS and is the current chapter president. She has done a heifer project and participated on the parliamentary procedure and livestock judging teams, and presented ornamental horticulture demonstrations in competition. The BMS parliamentary procedure team placed second at the subdistrict competition and the livestock judging team place sixth in the state out of 58 teams. Bailee Sheppard, is the chapter sentinel. She has done a heifer project, is on the livestock judging team, participated with Bennett in ornamental horticulture demonstrations and is also on the opening and closing ceremonies team. Camee Morrow, grade seven, is the chapter chaplain. Since she was in the sixth grade last year, she is really just getting a good start in FFA. She is on the local livestock judging team and she was selected to show the chapter pig at the last Bradford County Fair. She is also on the parliamentary procedure team. Charli Morrow, grade eight, is Camees sister and serves as the chapter treasurer. She has done a heifer project, is on the parliamentary procedure team and has participated in local livestock judging. The convention opens on Oct. 28 and runs through Nov. 1. The BMS group will leave Oct. 27 at 5 a.m. and return the evening of Nov. 1. The group, with Hartley, will be traveling in a van, shared with the team from Williston Middle School to save on expenses. No school funds are being spent on the trip all the money has been raised by the chapter through fundraisers and/or donated by parents and members of the community. Each child will pay $200 for their share of hotel, registration, and other costs, as well as providing their own admission fees for various planned tours and their own meals. A number of tours of agricultural industry businesses and other educational sites are included in the itinerary, as well as attendance at the convention. Tours are planned at the Atlanta Coca-Cola Museum, the Mayfield Dairy in Tennessee, Churchill Downs, the English Buffalo Farm, Beasleys Orchard (where kids can get a good look at apple and pumpkin production) and the Jack Daniels Distillery, as well as other sites along the way. The kids have earned this trip though all their hard work both on their projects and on the various fund raising activities we have organized, Hartley said. Hartley has been teaching agricultural science for seven years, the last three at BMS. She grew up agriculture participating in the 4-H and FFA in school, showing pigs and horses. Her family owned, what she calls, a hobby farm and encouraged her interests. She is a graduate of the University of Florida. I love my job, Hartley said. I really enjoy working with the kids. Its really wonderful when you have the support of your school administration and the community. Without the support of the community it would be impossible to have a good ag program. I am thankful to everyone who helps us.

Jackson said he did not know what the remaining balance on the loan was, but added he was sure it was under $100,000. Jackson said the clubs balance sheet is strong, with debt under $100,000 and real estate valued many times that amount. However, the organizations anemic cash flows have put course maintenance in jeopardy. We just cant take care of the golf course with the income we have coming in, he said. Jackson told Bradford commissioners that he is organizing a meeting for Oct. 24 at the clubhouse to discuss ways of saving the course. The meeting is open to the public. County Commissioner Danny Riddick and a representative of the Bradford County Property Appraisers Office will be at the meeting. After his presentation to commissioners, Jackson said the membership will likely decide on a course of action during its annual meeting in November, when it is scheduled to replace half of its 10-member board of directors. Celebration at Tigers Place The RJE Alumni will host a celebration of the Tigers Place on Saturday, Oct. 25, beginning at noon. There will be food, games, fun and lots of memories. All RJE Alumni and friends are invited to attend. For more information, contact Valara Petteway at 904-612-3942. GOLF Continued from 1A

Readers who wish to pose gardening questions should forward them to Jim DeValerio at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hey, my oak tree just died! Believe it or not, I get this kind of call about once a month, so dont feel like you are the only one coping with this problem. The scenario usually starts with a phone call to the extension office from a person who is saddened because they discovered that a prized tree in their landscape has suddenly died. When I get these types of calls I like to schedule an appointment with the individual so I can inspect the tree as soon as possible, hoping for the best but knowing there is probably nothing that can be done to correct the situation. Very often the diseased trees have light gray to dark grey to black irregular, splotchy lesions on the bark of limbs or trunk. These lesions, along with severe crown dieback are telltale signs of a fungal infection called Hypoxalon canker. It is easy to not notice the gray splotches if you dont know what to look for. They are normally present for many years before the infection progresses to cause crown dieback, which is often when the tree owner recognizes their tree has a problem. The Hypoxalon fungus is a wood rotting fungus that is common in the southeast. It is spread by wind-blown spores that are borne in the gray cankers on the tree. The seed-like spores are blown from tree to tree, often times infecting even young seedlings. The disease typically remains a low-level stress that does not cause noticeable problems on young, healthy trees. Older trees that are stressed often fall prey to this disease. There are several kinds of stress factors that can affect trees. Some, like construction activities that damage roots, are caused by humans. An unfortunate and common scenario occurs when land is cleared for development. Heavy equipment is expensive to operate but if you want to save existing trees it is wise to clear land carefully so trees roots are not damaged and the bark is not injured on trees that are left on site. Florida is prone to natural periods of extreme drought weather contrasted by flooding conditions. The combination of drought and flooding stress is particularly hard on the trees and favorable for the fungus. It is possible that the disease occurs more often because there are more oak trees in the tree canopy due to fire suppression. Florida, by virtue of its frequent lightning and dry conditions, evolved in a fire ecology that resulted in a predominantly piney landscape that burned every few years. Taking steps that reduce root damage through soil compaction or disturbance, watering trees during periods of drought and minimizing mechanical damage can help to keep your tree healthy. Removing rotted or broken limbs may be necessary to prevent trees from damaging persons or property if they break off of the tree. Now is a good time to have a certified arborist inspect your trees to see if pruning is needed. In some cases it is less expensive to remove the whole tree and plant a new one than it is to selectively prune a tree. Refer to University of Florida/ IFAS publication entitled, Community Tree Care by Ed Gilman for more information. It is easy to find on the Web or at your local extension office. Happy gardening!

BY WENDY RUSSELL BC Emergency Management October is Fire Safety and Prevention Month, and we also take time to honor the brave firefighters who put their lives on the line on any given day. It is no secret that Bradford County has an outstanding group of committed volunteer firefighters. Over the past year, Bradford County volunteer firefighters have responded to nearly 2,000 emergency calls. Their unselfish devotion and dedication should not go unrecognized. These men and woman spend much of their spare time away from their families preparing and training to be ready to answer the call to the citizens of Bradford County. The volunteer firefighters on-going training includes numerous NIMS (National Incident Management Systems) online training courses, lessons from practical skills task books, Division of Forestry training, first responder and higher medical training, Hazmat awareness and operations training. These training courses include learning about the history of the fire service, fire chemistry and fire behavior, firefighter safety, emergency procedures, and the use of ladders, tools and fire hose to extinguish fires. The certification the volunteers are continuously working toward is a state-mandated requirement to perform as an interior firefighter working inside the hot zone. The basic course totals more than 206 hours of training just to achieve the basic firefighter certification as a volunteer firefighter. Our volunteers do a great job and we could not provide the level of emergency service we have without their efforts, said Brian Johns, fire department coordinator. Having said that, it is also important that all citizens know what to do to prevent fires before they start and to be knowledgeable about how to help ensure the safety or your families within your own homes. Appoint a family leader and make your own plans for fire safety in your home. Draw a floor plan of your home with at least two ways of escaping every room. Dimensions do not need to be exact but make sure the plan shows important details such as stairs, hallways and windows that can be used as fire escape routes. Be sure to designate a safe meeting place outside the house. Always sleep with the bedroom doors closed. This will keep deadly heat and smoke out of bedrooms, giving you additional time to escape. Check smoke detectors once a month and change the batteries at least once a year. Smoke detectors sense abnormal amounts of smoke or invisible combustion gases in the air. They can detect both smoldering and burning fire. Next week when the time changes would be a good time to change those batteries. In the event a smoke detector goes off, roll out of bed and stay low. One breath of smoke or gases could be enough to make you very sick. As the cooler weather approaches, remember space heaters need space. Keep portable space heaters at least three feet from anything that may burn. Never leave heaters on when you leave home or go to sleep. Kitchen fires are the most common cause of house fires. You can reduce the risk by keeping cooking areas clear of combustibles. Keep the handles of your pots turned inward so as not to hang over the stove. If grease catches fire, carefully slide a lid over the pan, smother the flames and turn off the burner. Never throw water on a grease fire or attempt to carry it outside. Replace frayed or cracked electrical cords and dont overload extension cords or run them under a rug. Keep matches and lighters far out of a childs reach. For more children fire safety tips go to www.sparky.org/parentpage/ fpwkids.htm. Always remember: During a house fire event, time is critical. Dont waste time getting dressed, dont search for pets or valuables. Just get out! Please keep in your mind and in your heart that support of the volunteer fire departments goes a long way. Your contributions, your praise or even just a thank you, means a great deal to our firefighters; it reassures them that what they do is not in vain. Their proudest endeavor would be to save your life.

administration from Mississippi College, he was hired by the Bradford County school system and served in the following positions: Hampton Elementary principal, 1969-72; Bradford Middle principal, 1973-75; Director of operations in charge of maintenance, transportation and warehousing, 1975-90. Coaching football and working in education were big parts of his life, but so was Scouting. Register, who grew up in Hamilton County, was a member of the Boy Scouts and was the first member of Troop 98 in Jasper to ever attain the rank of Eagle Scout. In February, Register was honored at the Boy Scouts of America-North Florida Council American Values Dinner. He was presented with the Scouts Distinguished Citizen Award. Register, who appeared to be truly humbled by the award, made it a point to thank all those in attendance at the dinner. Id like to say thank you for coming and being a part of giving a boost to Scouting, Register said. America needs Scouting bad, particularly in this day and time. The news of his death was obviously an emotional moment for Hurse, but the news also brought on fond memories. It was a close relationship Hurse and Register shared as they were the only coaches on the varsity staff at that time. He was my mentor, Hurse said. He was a great football coach. For more on Register, please see his obituary on page 7B. Keystone Heights High Autumn Bostick (pictured) earned the right to compete at the regional level along with Union County Savannah Woodall and team. See page 5B for more.

Register still holds the highest winning percentage among BHS head coaches at 75 percent, something former BHS head coach David Hurse likes to point out. If Register had stayed at BHS and coached a lot longer than he did, Hurse said the BHS stadium would be named after Register instead of being called David Hurse Stadium. Lennard taught me just about everything I know about football, Hurse said. Register went 55-14-4 in seven seasons (1955-61), won five straight Keystone Conference championships and never had a losing season. His 1960 team was the first to go undefeated at BHS, and the Tornadoes went 21-0-1 in his final two seasons. When Register left to take the head coaching job at Bay High School, Hurse, who was an assistatnt, took over, guiding Bradford to state titles in 1965 and 1966. From 1960 through 1966 (Registers sixth season through Hurses fifth season), Bradford teams had a combined record of 64-9-3. It just kind of helped push me on, Hurse said of the success Register had. At a BHS players and coaches reunion in 2010, Register talked of how proud he was of those 1960 and 1961 teams. He said the 1960 team didnt have much size, using starting offensive tackle Cecil Leach as an example. Register said Leach weighed 157 pounds. We werent big, but we had pretty good speed, Register said. We had a great toughness about us and great heart for football. The 1961 team was special to Register for more than just its 11-0 record. All 28 players on the varsity that year played enough to earn a letter, Register said at the 2010 reunion. I was proud of that fact. The 1960 team started what would become a 25-game winning streak, which ended in 1962 under Hurse. That team also began a 32-game streak without a loss when factoring in ties. Tom Smith, who played on the 1960 team, said he and others who played under Register benefited more off the field. He was a very tough coach, Smith said. He was tough on me and all the players, but he made us all better men having played under him. Smith said Register was one of those coaches who was never satisfied with the teams performance while the game was going on. He would throw his clipboard and raise hell during halftime, even if the Tornadoes were up by three touchdowns, Smith said. Hed pitch a fit in the locker room, Smith said. Youd think we were three (touchdowns) down. However, Register was not shy about sharing his confidence in the 1960 team after an 18-7 win over Palatka in the fifth week of the season. The Tornadoes had lost 10 in a row to Palatka and 14 of 16 meetings. He told us we had the opportunity to do something very special and that was to be undefeated, Smith said. He told us that after the Palatka game. Four weeks after playing Palatka, Bradford faced a challenge from Clay, which led to an interesting late-game decision. During the 2010 BHS players and coaches reunion, Register said Clay had just scored to pull to within 25-19 late in the game. The Tornadoes had a fourth-and-2 at their own 30-yard line. Quarterback Irwin Martin tried to persuade Register to go for it on fourth down. Register said he knew that wasnt really the smart decision, but he also knew he didnt want to give the ball back to a Clay team that had momentum. Register said he consulted with Hurse, whose response was, Kick the damn ball. In the end, Register decided to go four it, calling a quarterback sneak. Before the play, he told Martin, If you dont get a first down, dont let me see you after the game. Martin did pick up the necessary yardage, and Bradford ran the clock out on the 25-19 victory. Thank God he made it, Hurse said, chuckling at the memory of that play before adding that Register was probably right in his thinking that it wouldnt have been good to punt the ball to Clay. They were on a roll, Hurse said. That season ended in memorable fashion, with Bradford defeating Baker County 28-13 in the Strawberry Bowl. Bradford and Baker played to a 13-all tie to open the season. Registers final team was the first in school history to win every game. The 1961 Tornadoes recorded another win over Palatka (27-6) and ended the season with a 21-12 Strawberry Bowl win over Bolles. Bradford had put together six straight winning seasons prior to Register taking over for J.C. Hobbs. Register kept the streak going, winning at least six games in each of his seven seasons. When Registers teams won, they usually won comfortably. The smallest average margin of victory the Tornadoes had under Register was 10 points during the 1956 season. His 1961 team won by an average margin of 25 points. Bradford went 7-3 in 1955 and 6-4-1 in 1956. A 6-4 season in 1957 was followed by seasons of 7-2-1 in 1958 and 7-1-2 in 1959. Despite getting that first win over Palatka in a long time, the closest call the 1960 Tornadoes had was a 19-18 win over Bolles. Six of Bradfords 11 opponents that year scored seven points or less as the Tornadoes outscored their opposition by a combined score of 223-95. The 1961 team was even more impressive in that regard as opponents scored an average of five points against the Tornadoes. Bradford outscored opponents 302-53. Success followed Register to Bay High School in Panama City. He led the school to two Big Five Conference championships. Register was named Coach of the Year by the Gainesville Sun three straight years and was the first Florida coach to be selected twice to coach the North-South All-Star Game. Despite moving to Panama City, Register would return to Bradford County. After earning a masters degree in education Former BHS coach Register passes away at 86 Lennard Register Making the cut
2B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 The common cold and the flu share similar symptoms and its often hard to tell which of the two you may be suffering from. Both are respiratory illnesses and are caused by viruses though different ones. One indication that you may have the flu and not a cold is that the flu tends to come on quickly with much intensity and is often accompanied by two to three weeks of fatigue and weakness. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Flu season is October through May. The CDC recommends getting vaccinated in September or as early as the vaccine is available. However, if you miss that deadline it may still help to get vaccinated later in the flu season as most of the seasonal flu activity peaks in January or later. There are two types of flu vaccines: the flu shot and the nasal-spray flu vaccine. The flu shot is given with a needle and contains the inactivated virus. It is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people, people with chronic conditions and pregnant women. The nasal-spray contains a vaccine made with live, weakened flu viruses and is approved for use in healthy people 2-49 years of age who are not pregnant. If you or your family members are feeling a bit under the weather and want to know whether it is a cold or the flu, be sure to see your Provider soon. Your Provider may prescribe flu antiviral drugs if you are very sick or are considered high risk, but its very important that they be used earlywithin the first two days of symptoms. People considered at high risk for severe flu illness include pregnant women, young children, seniors, and those with certain chronic health conditions.

What was also unique was that Lazenby used the opportunity to shed light on his own condition. He does not have ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrigs Disease), but does suffer with a neurological disorder that affects muscle movement. I just looked at (the ice-bucket challenge) as an opportunity to have a bit of fun and to just raise awareness of muscle diseases in general, Lazenby said. Lazenby, a 2004 Bradford High School graduate, has dystonia, which causes involuntary contractions of muscles. It is a condition he has dealt with since he was in high school, though it wasnt until the start of this year that he learned what it was he had and how to get relief from the disorders effects. It so happened that a co-worker of Lazenbys at the University of Florida Department of Medicine has dystonia. She heard of what Lazenby was experiencing contracting muscles and pain on the right side of his body, from the base of his skull to his midbackand recommended he see Dr. Irene A. Malaty, a UF neurologist. I expected to go to that neurologist and not get answers, Lazenby said. I had pretty much given up, but she was so highly recommended. I decided it was worth a shot. Malaty thought Lazenby had dystonia symptoms and administered an injection of Botox into his neck and back. We put in the medicine and hoped for the best, Lazenby said. Within seven days, he finally had some relief from years of discomfort. My sleep improved, my mood improved and I just mentally improved, Lazenby said. I wasnt in painthe same level of pain I used to be in every day. It made a huge difference. Lazenbys first symptom of dystonia was tension in his neck. He constantly stretched his neck and would make trips to see chiropractors. Theyd find out that I was out of adjustment, but they really couldnt tell me why, he said. Chiropractors asked if he had been in an accident or suffered some sort of sports injury, but the answer to either question was no. Meanwhile, the condition got progressively worse. The tension and tight feeling spread from his neck into his right shoulder, eventually moving down the right side of his spine. Lazenby said he started really getting concerned when he was a senior in high school. Thats when he began experiencing torticollis, or a twisting of his neck. I was getting pinched nerves in my neck that would cause my head to pull toward my shoulder, Lazenby said. I wouldnt be able to release it. I literally could not pull my head straight. I would have the pinched-nerve, burning sensation running down my right arm and into my fingertips. This happened probably at least a dozen times between the ages of 18 and 19. Thats when I started getting really concerned because there was a tremendous amount of pain, and it was limiting my mobility. Visits to chiropractors and massage therapists became the norm. Chiropractors would sometimes have to work on Lazenby for one to two hours to give him any relief. Massage therapists were baffled as to why he had the constant build-up of tensiontension that affected only the right side of his body. X-rays showed nothing wrong with Lazenby. A myelogram, in which dye is injected into the spinal fluid, showed nothing wrong as well. Lazenby went to an osteopathic doctor, who suggested a look at Lazenbys Vitamin D levels through blood work. His levels were low, so he began taking prescription-strength Vitamin D. It did make a huge difference in his overall well-being, Lazenby said, but it still didnt solve his problem. Finally, the trip to Dr. Malaty, who told Lazenby that since tests showed everything in his body to be structurally fine, the problem was likely neurological. Prior to getting a Botox injection, Lazenby said he had trouble sleeping. Hes the type of person who is not comfortable sleeping on only one side, but sleeping on his right side seemed to be the only way to control the muscle contractions so he could sleep. I was not able to sleep on my left side for probably the last four or five years or so, Lazenby said. Id say a week after I got my treatment, I was able to sleep on my left side with no pain. There is currently no cure for dystonia. What Lazenby is looking at is Botox injections every three months, plus a regiment of stretching exercises. He is also still taking prescription-strength Vitamin D. Lazenby said he has lost strength in his right shoulder and right arm. Its something hes noticed when participating in one of his favorite activities. I bow hunt, he said. Ive had to turn my bow down probably at least 15 to 20 pounds since last year. Still, Lazenby said he considers himself fortunate. He has seen others with dystonia who cant walk or who cant use their arms. Lazenby can still do many of the things he enjoys. Im not the worst-case scenario by any means, he said. Lazenby, who is married to Lazenby takes ice-bucket challenge, deals with own illness Phillip Lazenby Legals See LAZENBY, 3B
Jacquez Warren for a minimal gain, Shamar Highland broke up an Oelrich pass on a fourth-down play. A 32-yard run by Franklin on Newberrys next possession resulted in a first down at the Union 27. The Panthers advanced only 4 yards, thanks to tackles by Wimpy and Treyce Hersey. Newberrys Tyler OBrian attempted a 40-yard field goal, which was short. The Tigers had 3:53 to work with before halftime. Cox promptly completed a 16-yard pass to Johnson. Two plays later, Cox hit Miller in stride for what would be a 44-yard touchdown. Miller had beaten the defensive back, who then fell down before the completion. Dairon Alexanders run on the two-point conversion put the Tigers up 217. Unions defense forced the Panthers to go three and out to open the second half. The offense then marched 72 yards for its final score. The Tigers turned to their ground game after just eight run attempts in the first half. Johnson had four carries for 54 yards on the drive, including a 35-yard run to the Newberry 5-yard line. Cox eventually scored on a 2-yard run to make the score 27-7 with 5:09 remaining in the third quarter. Johnson rushed for 54 of his team-high 59 yards in the second half. Durn had 42 yards in the half and finished with 58. A 13-yard reception by Zak Lee had the Tigers on the move on their next drive, but a fumble at midfield was recovered by the Panthers. Newberry marched inside the 20, with a 5-yard pass converting a fourth-down play and a 9-yard run by Oelrich on third down resulting in a first down at the 22. Franklin had a 5-yard carry to the 17 after an incomplete pass on first down, but the Panthers turned the ball over on downs after two straight incompletions. Newberrys defense forced Union to go three-and-out on the ensuing series, with the Panthers beginning their next series at the Union 49-yard line. A 19-yard run by Jacquez Jernigan resulted in a first down at the 30, while a pass interference penalty helped the Panthers move to the 20. BY CLIFF SMELLEY Staff Writer Cody Miller caught two touchdown passes, while Isaiah Johnson returned a kickoff 77 yards for another score to help the Union County High School football team defeat host Newberry for a 27-14 District 7-1A win on Oct. 17. Quarterback Caleb Cox, who completed 9-of-14 passes for 171 yards, ran for a 2-yard score as the Tigers (4-2) evened their district record at 1-1. It was a huge win in staying in the hunt for a playoff berth considering Newberry (4-4) brought a 2-0 district record into the game. Like I told the kids before the game, were under the gun, Union head coach Ronny Pruitt said. If (Newberry) wouldve won, they were in (the playoffs). Weve got to win every week. The teams were pretty much even in terms of some of the final numbers, such as time of possession, first downs and total yards, but the Union defense prevented the Panthers from scoring on four trips inside the 40-yard line. Two of those Newberry drives penetrated the 30-yard line, with one even getting inside the 20. It was a noteworthy performance from a unit that was missing linebacker Casey Driggers, who is out with a neck injury. We had to put some new kids in new positions, Pruitt said, adding, The defense really bowed up when it needed to. That says a whole lot about the character of the kids. The Tigers scored on the games opening drive, with three pass completions and a 13-yard run by Antwan Durn helping Union move from its 36 to the Newberry 27. After a 2-yard loss, Cox found Miller standing wide open at the 5-yard line. Miller made the catch and walked into the end zone, with Tyler McDavid adding the PAT at the 8:05 mark. Newberry answered late in the quarter. A 19-yard punt return by Jason Franklin set the Panthers up at midfield. Franklin had a 5-yard run on first down, but was dropped for a 2-yard loss by Clay Halle and Khris Wimpy. On third down, Tanner Fowler took a short pass from Nick Oelrich and turned it into a 47-yard touchdown, with the successful PAT tying the score with 1:25 to play in the first quarter. The home teams excitement didnt last long as Johnson fielded the ensuing kickoff at his own 23-yard line and broke free down the Newberry sideline for a touchdown. McDavids PAT was blocked, but the Tigers had a lead they would never relinquish. That was big for us at that time, Pruitt said of Johnsons return. Newberry threatened to score twice before the Tigers next score. An 11-yard run by Franklin gave the Panthers a first down at the Union 28. An illegal procedure penalty backed the Panthers up before Dawson Tyler sacked Oelrich for a 9-yard loss.

Dear Editor: As you are probably aware from all the posters, billboards and commercials bombarding us daily, there is an election looming. And while most of us are consumed with who we will choose for governor (The Liar, The Criminal or the Computer Geek), few know or understand on of the most important issues on the ballot for November. Judging by its name, Amendment 1, known as the Water and Land Legacy Amendment, seems harmless enough. It also look generally innocuous when reading the summary of the amendment printed on the sample ballots and in press releases. Heres the summary of the amendment as it appears on their website Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and manage conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habitat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and historic or geologic sites, by dedicating 33% of net revenues from the existing excise tax on documents for 20 years. Who would dare oppose clean water, restoring the Everglades and conserving sensitive environmental areas, unless you are some heartless glutton, right? Most folks have no idea where this amendment is coming from or what it means. Perhaps it would be best if you knew the history behind it and what it seeks to amend. In 2000, the Florida Preservation 2000 Act (now called Florida Forever.) This law established a program by which the Florida Department of Environmental Protection could implement and oversee conservation land purchases to protect and restore environmentally sensitive lands and wetlands. Funding was made possible by using monies collected from documentary stamps (doc stamps) a tax of $0.70 per $100.00 on the sale of real properties like homes and land, and $0.35 for every $100.00 on documents that are executed in the state like deeds, liens, titles, etc. Doc Stamp funds are stored in the states General Revenue Fund, from which a host of different public projects and expenditures are funded. Not only is Florida Forever funded, but so are: the Coastal Lands Acquisition and Debt Service, the Water Management Lands Trust Fund, Conservation and Recreation Lands (CARL) Trust Fund, State Game Trust Fund, Invasive Plant Control Trust Fund, State Lake Restoration Trust Fund, Water Quality Assurance Trust Fund, State Transportation Trust Fund, various community affairs grants, two state housing trust funds and two local government housing trust funds, not to mention some other public benefits programs. Florida Forever funding accounted for almost 35% of the total doc stamp revenues spent annually. By statute; the Florida Forever Act, took a maximum of $300 million of the doc stamp revenues annually from year 2000 through year 2008. In 2008, Florida Forever was reauthorized by the states legislature to continue funding up to $300 million per year for an additional 10 years. From 2008 through 2014, Florida Forever Funding continued, but not at the maximum of $300 million per year. Due to the difficult economic downturn felt all over the country as a result of the bursting housing bubble and the high rates of unemployment, the Florida Legislature voted to reduce the budget of Florida Forever and appropriated only enough funding to pay the debt service on existing purchases and projects. At the same time, the Governor asked all state agencies who purchased lands with Florida Forever Funds to inventory their lands and look for any parcels that could be declared surplus and sold. By law, any lands surplussed that were originally purchased with Florida Forever funds would have the revenues form those surplus sales returned back to the program. In other words, if they sold a piece of land purchased with Florida Forever funds, the money form the sale of that land would have to go back into the program. With the exception of fiscal year 2005-06 when doc stamp revenues hit an all time high of $4.4 billion, our state has seen a steady doc stamp revenues annually from $1.1 billion in 2006 to about $1.8 billion in 2014. From 2000 to 2010, Florida Forever dedicated $300 million of the total documentary stamp funds annually. Thats a total of $2.89 billion dollars in 10 years that helped purchase, protect and maintain more than 2.5 million acres in our state. Now that you know where we came from, lets look at what this new amendment seeks to accomplish. First of all, the Water and Land Legacy Act seeks to remove the maximum funding of $300 million per year and replace it with a MINIMUM 33% of the documentary stamp revenues annually. Secondly, those funds allocated of the Water and Land Legacy CAN NOT BE CO-MINGLED. That means that once its allocated for the program (33% of the doc stamp revenues by law) they can not take any portion of those funds and put them back into other programs, no matter how essential they are to maintaining the public welfare. THAT, my friends, is fiscally irresponsible. Remember all those other programs I listed earlier like community affairs grants, housing funds and transportation funds? Well those essential programs would take a back seat to this new law. The supporters of the bill will tell you there is no increase in taxes to you, but you and I both know that when funding for road widening or public housing falls short, its going to have to come from somewhere, If there is no money in the general fund they can shift back into these services, there is bound to be a new tax somewhere to pay for it. Of course, the alternative is to de-fund some other service without a law protecting its funding. The usual candidates are programs like education and law enforcement. But theres another big problem with this amendment no one is talking aboutespecially not the supporters of the bill. Originally, Florida Forever stated in F.S. 259.105 (6)(a), All lands acquired pursuant to this section shall be managed for multiple-use purposes, where compatible with the resource values of and management objectives for such lands. As used in this section, multiple-use includes, but is not limited to, outdoor recreational activities. There is no such similar language in this proposed amendment. In fact, it does not even specify that the monies be used for land purchase or management. It allows for outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. Now, I dont know about you, but I read that to mean some patch of grass in the middle of a city could be purchased with our tax dollars because some group decided it was historically or environmentally important. Whats worse, it would allow the building of things like boardwalks, paved trails and parking lots on our wild lands. And Ill lay you a dollar to a doughnut that supporters of this amendment (like the Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club, Audubon Society and Defenders of Wildlife) would love nothing more than to use doc stamp money to build classrooms on these lands where they can be free to teach our kids about the evils of hunting. Its already happened on the Circle B Bar Ranch in Polk County, where waterfowl hunting was taken from us and a classroom manned by Sierra Club and Audubon volunteers pushes thousands of kids through every year, teaching them about preservation with a strong antihunting undertone. In my opinion, Amendment 1 is a steppingstone to more restriction and more loss of available recreational lands for us to hunt on. Were already seeing less and less quality public hunting opportunities as we fight for quota permits every year. With the vagueness of this amendment, it provides the latitude necessary to remove hunting and consumptive recreation from our public lands. Of course, if you ask any Amendment 1 proponent, they will deny it. For the record, you should know that the drafters of this amendment were members of the Florida Wildlife Federation, The Nature Conservancy, Defenders of Wildlife, Audubon, Sierra Club and several other organizations that have fought very hard to keep hunters and hunting out of many of the newly-acquired public lands in Florida. When this amendment first reared its ugly head, it was brought to leaders of hunting community who were asked to support it. I, and others immediately noticed the vague wording and significant increases in spending at a time when Floridians are struggling financially. We suggested a more responsible approach with a graduated increase in minimum funding over the next 10 years so that as tax revenues increase, so too would Florida Forever fundingbut not to the detriment of other programs or services that might be considered essential. Florida Forever has worked and is still in place. Its been extended through 2020 by the Florida Legislature. An up to 25% increase in funding each year (not to exceed 30%) and no less than 10% of the annual doc stamp sales would adequately fund Florida Forever and keep it 4B Telegraph, Times & Monitor B Section Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014 Paid political advertisement paid for by the Bradford County Republican Executive Committee P.O.

Our state park system has received the National Gold What you should know about Amendment 1 Vote for Amendment 1, quality of life Metal Award three times, more than any other state. During the 2012-13 fiscal year, 25,575,794 people visited our parks. Many were tourists, spending their money here and going back home. Our lakes, rivers, springs, and beaches are some of our most precious assets, and over the years we have added more of them to our state park system. However, if we want to continue to enjoy our states beauty, attract visitors, and preserve these treasures for our grandchildren, we must be cautious. How long have you lived in Florida? Have you noticed that our waterways just arent what they were when you were younger? This is the result of decades of population growth and neglect. We cant stop population growth, but there are other things we can do to maintain our quality of life. One is to vote Yes for Amendment #1, the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment. This amendment was initiated through a citizen petition supported by more than 50 Florida organizations. Over 700,000 signatures were obtained statewide to get it on the ballot. This action was necessary due to the failure of our state government to do all they could to protect our fragile environment. During recent years, money earmarked for protecting sensitive public land has been diverted to other uses. We need to put it back where it belongs. There are several objections to Amendment #1, but they dont hold water. It will not cause an increase in taxes. A small amount of an existing document stamp will go towards this purpose. This money will not rob other important areas of their funding. Join the 700,000 of us who have already supported this initiative, and when Amendment #1 passes, we will all be winners. Pat Caren, President Alligator Creek Garden Club, Starke moving forward. But Amendment 1 supporters wanted more, and they werent willing to compromise. In fact, when we asked to sit down and work out a better plan, we were told the amendment had already been submitted and they were moving forward with or without the support of the hunting community. The framers of this amendment lied to us and were simply positioning themselves to either get our help or make us look like the bad guys. What this really boils down to is these ultra-green groups want more money to spend on projects as they see fit. But its not about conservation. Its about preservation. Its about locking up as much land as possible as quickly as possible and making it all bicycle, equestrian and kayak friendly. Theyre not interested in any thing less than the complete removal of consumptive recreational use (like hunting) because to them we are nothing more than rapists of the land. They view hunters as the enemydrunken buffoons with a lust for blood out to annihilate every animal from the face of the earth, pollute the land and water and leave destruction in our wake. Its up to you to make sure that we dont give them the means to end legal hunting on lands purchased with public funds. I urge each of you to spread to work about Amendment 1. Let your non-hunting friends and family know just how dangerous this bill is to our hunting heritage. By Chuck Echenique Woods N Water Dear Editor: As election day comes, there is an issue that I want to make sure people know my position on and that is Amendment 2 (the supposed Medical Marijuana amendment). During the 2014 session the Florida Legislature passed a bill that legalized the use of Medical Marijuana, yes we already have in Florida Statute, legal Medical Marijuana and I have supported that. Sadly it has caused some confusion as to my views on the Amendment 2 issue up for a vote this year. This amendment will basically legalize recreational use of marijuana for everyone and that includes minors who arent even old enough to buy cigarettes. So let me make this very clear, I support real medical marijuana like the legislature passed and I do not support amendment 2 that is a back door way to legalize recreational marijuana. Now my reasons for standing against amendment 2 are simple. The amendment talks about it being for people with a debilitating ailment, the definition of a debilitating ailment can mean a lot. As a veteran I have been diagnosed with medical issues (jumping out of planes is fun but it hurts) and there are days when the pain can literally keep me from having full range of motion and / or causes enough pain that I have to take some kind of medicine. I asked Dr. friends of mine and if you claim to have pain (something that cannot Amendment 2: back door to legalizing recreational use of marijuana See LETTER, 5B

The answer is yes, and all someone has to do is be able to describe how it is debilitating (without evidence). Please also note that the Florida Medical Association is against this amendment. This is an obvious loop hole that unscrupulous people will take advantage of to gain access. Next if a minor goes to a Dr. for any reason that Dr. doesnt have to have an adults permission to treat and prescribe medicine, that minor (possibly your child) could then complain about health issues (claim them as debilitating) and be recommended marijuana and there is nothing you the parent could do about it! Is that really what we want our state constitution to stand for? Instead of freedom and rights, its as a loop hole for people to gain access to a drug. Yet another issue I have is the very vague term of caregiver, this is simply someone over the age of 21, could be a convicted felon and doesnt need any medical training. Today we call someone like that who hands out drugs a drug dealer, if amendment 2 passes they will have a more official title, caregiver! Lastly, what is medical marijuana? In the legislation that we passed that created real medical marijuana, we put limits on the amount of THC (the part that gets people high) and it is restricted to the point of not enough to become intoxicated and that it has enough for it to function as a medicine. The current amendment 2 would allow for any and all strengths and would not require a purity and you could find additives that could make it even worse and because it is a Constitutional amendment we cant legislate it. People have said tax it, but we dont tax medicine in Florida and so would get no revenue ($0) from the sale of it. In the end let me be very clear. I am absolutely in support of what we have already passed into law and is referred to as real medical marijuana! I am not a supporter in any way shape or form of this sham that is amendment 2 and being called medical marijuana, it is dangerous, it is not about medicine and it will show to have long term negative effects on our already struggling society.

service errors before Dixie committed two straight attack errors with Andrews serving, giving the Tigers the 27-25 win. The Tigers trailed by as many as eight points in the second set, but fought back to pull to within 21-18. A service ace by Madelyn Kish pulled Union to within 22-21, but an attack error and later a double hit gave Dixie the winning points. Union built a 12-4 lead in the third set and added five straight points with Devin Lewis serving to go up 17-4. Andrews scored a couple of points during that span with a tip and a kill, while Lewis recorded an ace. Lilly Combs and Tristyn Southerland recorded consecutive kills off of Madison Adams assists to later go up 247. A Dixie service error gave the Tigers the eventual 25-9 win. The fourth set was a 19-19 affair before the Bears reeled off six straight points to win 25-19. Union was unable to score a single point while serving in the tiebreaker. Two kills by Southerland and one each by Andrews and Combs helped the Tigers stay close before Dixie sealed the deal with a tip that just fell over the net and found a spot between the Union defense for the Bears 15-10 win. DISTRICT Continued from 5B Unions James Ford had a sack for a 4-yard loss on a third-down play, but Oelrich threw an 18yard touchdown pass to Fowler on fourth-and-8 with 2:41 left in the game. The PAT made the score 27-14. The Panthers unsuccessfully attempted an onside kick. Union was able to run out the clock, with four straight runs by Durn moving the Tigers from the Newberry 39 to the 18. After an 8-yard run by Alexander, Cox took a knee to end the game. Union faces another district opponent this Friday, Oct. 24, when it hosts Chiefland at 7:30 p.m. Chiefland (4-4) is 1-1 in the district after its 34-24 win over Williston on Oct. 17. The Indians district loss came against Newberry by a 17-13 score. BY DAN HILDEBRAN Monitor Editor Keystone Heights recovered two onside kicks and scored 21 points in the final one-and-ahalf minutes of the game, but the comeback fell short, leaving the Indians with a 48-42 District 4-4A loss to the Villages Charter School on homecoming on Oct. 17. Keystone (0-6, 0-2) fell behind 13-0 in the first quarter, but then kept pace with the visitors, trailing by the same 13-point deficit at halftime, with a 27-14 score. Keystones first touchdown came on a 40-yard run by Justin Raysin with 7:54 left in the half. Later in the second quarter, Anton Noble broke a 57-yard run from the Keystone 35 to the Villages 8. Two plays later, Noble hit pay dirt with a 1-yard run with 2:30 left in the half. After intermission, the Buffalo (5-2, 2-1) extended their lead to 48-21, mostly on the legs of running back Jabari Jiles. The 5-9, 190-pound sophomore rushed for 334 yards on 25 carries and scored six of the Villages seven touchdowns. Poor tackling, which plagued the Indians earlier in the season, but appeared to be remedied two weeks ago, in Keystones 7-0 loss to Eustis, re-emerged as the Achilles heel of the Indian defense. We had guys in position, Keystone head coach Chuck Dickinson said of his squads efforts to stop Jiles. We just missed the guy. With 6:03 remaining in the third quarter, the Villages scored its final touchdown. The Indian defense held the Buffalo scoreless for the remainder of the game. Keystone defenders also stopped a midthird quarter drive, which the visitors started on their own 22 and ended on the Keystone 4. After allowing a Buffalo first down on its own five, the Indian defense stiffened and denied the Villages the end zone on four consecutive snaps. On the Villages next possession, the visitors handed the ball to a ninth-grade running back on four consecutive plays and netted 2 yards. Keystone took over on downs with 3:43 left in the game, trailing 48-21 from its own 44. After a 6-yard run by Noble, who rushed for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries, quarterback Wyatt Harvin completed a pair of passes to Earl Hall totaling 16 yards and scrambled for an additional 10, taking the ball to the Villages 24. From there, Harvin found a wide-open Noble in the end zone. J.J. Schofield tacked on the extra point, and the Indians closed the gap to 48-28 with 1:26 left in the game. Schofield then punched an onside kick toward the Villages bench. The ball bounded end over end close to the ground toward an awaiting Villages player, who appeared ready to smother the ball after scooping it off the ground. Just before reaching the white jersey, the ball popped high in the air over the head of the awaiting player and landed behind him. Players from both teams dove for the ball, which a Keystone player recovered. Harvin and company went back to work, taking over on the Villages 35 with 1:19 left in the game. After an incomplete pass and a Harvin scramble for no gain, the Keystone signal caller took a deep drop on third-and-10 and lofted a screen pass to Noble. The senior running back found nothing but five blue jerseys between him and the goal posts and sprinted into the end zone untouched. Schofield added the extra point. The Indian bench and crowd, electrified by the play, viewed a scoreboard showing 48.35 seconds left in the game and a 48-35 Villages lead. Schofield then kicked another high bouncer in the direction of the Buffalo bench, with the ball again popping up in the air on the second or third bounce over the outstretched arms of a waiting Villages player. After a scramble for the loose ball in front of the Villages coaches, an official signaled a Keystone possession. The Indian offense lined up once again on the Villages 35. Harvin took the snap from under center and dropped back to pass. He then scrambled to his right, searching for an open receiver. As two Buffalo linemen closed in on the quarterback, Dickinson shouted a command from the sideline: Throw it. Harvin got off a wobbly line drive just as the Villages defenders reached him. As the ball sailed toward Rian Prieto, who was open at the 5-yard line near the right sideline, Dickinson barked out a second directive: Catch it. The Indian receiver complied, snaring the pass on the 3 with a Buffalo defender on his back. Prieto rotated toward the sideline and fought for the final 3 yards, falling into the end zone and out of bounds. The line judge rushed toward Prieto, and after glaring at the field for a second, raised both arms, signaling a touchdown. After the extra point, Keystone had closed the gap to 48-42 with 16.7 seconds left. The Indian kickoff team set up for a third onside kick, but Villages coaches and players were now accustomed to Schofields high bouncer. They realized that the ball, after leaving the kickers foot and scorching the turf for the first 8 or 9 yards, would suddenly launch vertically. Instead of dropping down to scoop up the grounder, players needed to anticipate the pop-up. After Schofield punched the ball for the third onside kick, the awaiting Villages player at first took a step toward the oncoming ball, then stopped, waited for the bounce, took a half step back and then caught the ball as it descended. The Villages ran one play before time expired. Im proud of the kids, Dickinson said. We got two onside kicks and got it into the end zone. You get one more, and who knows? Youve got 12, 13 seconds left, you have a chance, maybe. The coach also cited continued improvement on offense. I thought we threw the ball better tonight, especially there at the end, he said. The kids caught the ball well. We did some of the things we have been trying to do all year.
